    The genetic component is not dominant though (8 to 25 percent?). Even if it were entirely genetic, it does not make it moral. Pedophiles try to rationalize what they do as being "just how my brain is wired." You could say the same of a lot of criminals that what they do is because their brains are just wired that way. You're really lost... And people have the right to oppose it and hopefully it will be overturned one day.

    The 20 Worst Films of 2012

    My vote would go for Fetih 1453. Terrible CGI-laden movie with hammy acting and pro-Ottoman propaganda (like most films from the region). Just look at that fake fire.

    Okay, race is something you are BORN into and it is not an action. "Being White" or "being Asian" are NOT actions. Homosex IS an action just as much as master bation is and both actions fly in the face of Deontology. The ACT of being with the same gender is an action that violates the Categorical Imperative and as such, all people of good morals can not condone it.

    The entire debate was about marriage specifically and asking the bakers to make cakes for the wedding. If you consider that a deviant idea and mockery of marriage and sexual union then it stands to reason that you would refuse service.

    From a Deontological perspective, yes, that is the case. It is literally Deviancy by definition. No, of course not. An ACTION is not the same as racial background. An action is something you physically choose to do while a race is something born into. They choose to violate the Categorical Imperative and it is on their ACTIONS that moral judgment fall.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    https://thehill.com/policy/defense/465105-congress-set-for-showdown-with-trump-over-kurds Congress set for showdown with Trump over Kurds President Trump is barreling toward a showdown with Congress over his decision to pull back U.S. troops in northern Syria despite widespread opposition. The announcement, which caught leadership and traditional GOP allies flatfooted, sparked a wave of condemnation, with Republicans calling it a “disaster in the making,” a “catastrophic mistake” and a “terrible decision.” Lawmakers are already weighing how to respond to Trump’s decision, setting the stage for a high-profile clash with Trump as soon as Congress returns from a two-week break on Monday. “Congress must and will act to limit the catastrophic impact of this decision,” said Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), a member of House GOP leadership, adding that Trump’s decision was having “sickening and predictable consequences.” Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) warned that unless Turkey changes its behavior “everything is on the table,” including “suspending arms sales, to suspending economic aid to even considering their status in NATO.” Lawmakers, scattered across the country for a two-week break, are having behind-the-scenes talks about potential legislative action and publicly throwing out a myriad of ideas ranging from a resolution opposing Trump’s actions to sanctions against Turkey to inserting language into a mammoth defense policy bill. “Multiple committees are looking at possible legislative efforts to put the House on record against the President’s outrageous decision,” a House Democratic leadership aide told The Hill. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y) separately predicted that “Congress will take some form of action” given the “broad condemnation” sparked by Trump’s decision.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    The story is civilians are dying as a result of Trump's policies. The "terrorism" claim is just an excuse by Erdogan to kill all the Kurdish civilians. As Turkish planes pounded Kurdish positions from the air and with artillery, CNN reporters on the ground in Syria reported smoke billowing from several large explosions as desperate civilians -- women, children and men -- fled the area on foot, some pushing others in wheelchairs, many crammed into the back of pickup trucks. With humanitarian groups reporting the bombardment could displace as many as 300,000 people, Erdogan's top adviser told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that Trump knew in advance about the scope of the Turkish attack.

    Well the government has made a very sorry judgment as is often the case. I don't see how it would be unfair to turn away a sex offender or a pervert or any deviant.

    Stores CAN discriminate for some things and not others already as it is. And he's famous for being against slavery and mistreatment of women. That's *literally* the entire point of his works. Just agree to disagree on this. What you see as normal others do not. If people think marriage should be a certain way then why would they want to cater to those who do not?

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    https://edition.cnn.com/2019/10/09/politics/turkey-syria-us-anger-ramifications/index.html Republican anger grows as Trump disavows Kurds by saying they didn't help during WWII Washington (CNN)Republicans savaged President Donald Trump Wednesday for allowing Turkey to attack US allies in Syria as the President offered varying reasons for giving Turkey the green light, including the fact that Kurds did not fight alongside the US in World War II. Turkey launched its military operation to flush Kurds allied with the US out of northeastern Syria sparking outrage in Congress, creating rare bipartisan unity about the risks to the Kurds, US national security interests, regional stability and the fight against ISIS. Trump apparently gave Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan the go-ahead on Sunday to proceed with his long-planned move against Kurdish fighters who make up part of the Syrian Defense Forces and who lost thousands of men fighting with the US against ISIS. As Turkish planes pounded Kurdish positions from the air and with artillery, CNN reporters on the ground in Syria reported smoke billowing from several large explosions as desperate civilians -- women, children and men -- fled the area on foot, some pushing others in wheelchairs, many crammed into the back of pickup trucks. With humanitarian groups reporting the bombardment could displace as many as 300,000 people, Erdogan's top adviser told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that Trump knew in advance about the scope of the Turkish attack. "President Trump and President Erdogan have reached an understanding over precisely what this operation is," Gulnur Aybet said from Ankara on Wednesday. "He knows what the scope of this operation is." The news trickling out of Syria fed increasing Republican anger, as lawmakers, former officials and analysts reacted throughout the day, and the US military stayed conspicuously silent.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    Trump let a muslim madman with a known hatred for Kurds and desire to get rid of them have complete control of their area. Those people fought against IS so they would have a homeland of their own.
  17. He handed them right over to the **** Erdogan to kill as he pleases.

    No, he was pretty open about his opposition to it outside of reproduction. He thought master bation was worse than suicide. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kantian_ethics#Sexual_ethics He would have certainly thought a man like Trump was a pervert.

    "Sexual union is the reciprocal use one human makes of the sexual organs and capacities of another. This is either a natural use...or an unnatural use, and unnatural use takes place either with a person of the same sex or with an animal of a nonhuman species. Since such transgressions of principle...do wrong to humanity in our own person, there are no limitations or exceptions whatsoever that can save them from being repudiated completely" -Immanuel Kant, The Metaphysics of Morals

    There is no God so it is illogical to say you can't do it because God said no.

    I'm not sure what is funny but perhaps if you are so intelligent then you should write your own Categorical Imperative. You are also conflating races with a lifestyle that is willingly pursued and religions like Catholicism and Judaism that people willingly follow.

    Well Aesthetics were an important part of Plato and Arstotle's works. That said, the jab at his eyes was a joke but not his support for the opposition to those laws. That was a very scumy thing of him to support.
